Armadillo Aerospace's Qualifying Hop

It appears that Armadillo Aerospace will win part of the Lunar Lander Challenge after an impressive show on the 12th of September. The Level Two prize requires a lander be able to take off, hover for an amount of time, travel to a second location and land again and Armadillo appears to have a very successful run doing just that.

Check out their video of the qualification on youtube - watch until the very end because you don't really see the scale of the lander until the guys approach it at the end. It's not as small as you think!
